The subject of trauma is gaining more attention as a significant public health issue. Social workers and other mental health professionals are on the front lines of addressing the multitude of social ills that result from trauma exposure. This workshop examines the unique ethical questions raised by our work with trauma survivors. Participants will explore the adequacy of current definitions of trauma and ways our profession can address traumatizing effects of toxic stressors such as racism, poverty and other forms of oppression. The unique ethical and boundary questions raised by trauma work will be reviewed. This presentation will look at ethical issues of trauma work through a social justice lens.

NOON HOUR WEBINAR: Burnout and Self-Care in Social Work: A Guidebook in Mental Health and Related Professions

Presented by SaraKay Smullens, MSW, LCSW, DCSW, CGP, CFLE, BCD

NASWWI Chapter 0 180 Article rating: No rating

This webinar is based on findings in SaraKay’s fourth book, Burnout and Self-Care in Social Work:  A Guidebook for Students and Those in Mental Health and Related Professions, ed 2, (NASW Press), where 5 burnout arenas, 4 underlying psycho-social causes (attendant syndromes), and care strategies (both self and societal) to address and alleviate burnout are highlighted.  SaraKay explains: “Like life itself, there is nothing neat about my evidence-based categorizations. They hold a great deal of overlap and are offered for understanding, prevention, and discussion.”  This edition also notes both differences and similarities between burnout and depression from a social work perspective.  Deeply concerned about what she calls “pathologized human reactions,” SaraKay emphasizes that in both burnout and depression reactions are usually understandable and appropriate reactions to life events. (She does discuss, however, when depressive reactions are psychiatric illnesses, requiring more than “the talking cure.”)

NOON HOUR WEBINAR: Emerging from the Pandemic: A Public Health Crisis into a Public Mental Health Crisis: Telehealth and its implications on Social Workers and Best Practice

Presented by Roberta Bronecki, MSW, LCSW, Kristen Golat, MSW, LCSW, Barbara Perkins, MSW, LCSW

NASWWI Chapter 0 134 Article rating: No rating

Social workers in all walks of practice are emerging from this pandemic in a different world. Our practices have changed, and not by a thoughtful plan or by choice, but rather, we were thrown into a world of technology that many of us were unfamiliar with and equally uncomfortable executing. As we emerge, we are now mindfully thinking about telehealth and its practical implications in clinical social work. In this session we will explore the question of best practice in telehealth services through the domains of care. What clients are best suited for telehealth services? How do we assess for appropriateness for telehealth services? What are the risks and legal implications of the use of telehealth services? And lastly, how do we, as social workers, embrace and execute services thoughtfully in this new world?
